New species in Northamptonshire

I lived and worked in Northamptonshire for many years. I’m now back visiting and I have seen three species of bird from the garden in Denton Wood which were not present in the county in the 1980s and 1990s. All three species now breed – they are raven, red kite and buzzard.
